Sample text

Willis, 2009: 169 ff. 29 DN II pp. 272 and 275 have the word in the expression kāyaṃ brahma-purohitaṃ , apparently without any semantic connection with our royal chaplain. 30 There is a brief reference to this at AN III p. 373. 31 MN I p. ; 412; II p. 161 f. 32 AN II p. 207 f. 38 chapter two distinguishes four kinds of persons: (i) the person who torments himself, (ii) the person who torments others, (iii) the person who torments himself and others, and (iv) the person who torments neither himself nor others.
